Default anyone made a push button turbo?

just had this thought earlier today, Im sure someone here has done it so I wanted to get some opinions (how well it works or if its bad for the electric setup)

basically, assuming you have a 36V motor...
you connect 3 12v batteries as usual, but the last battery, instead of going to the controller, goes to the common of a 12V contact (controlled by a momentary pushbutton), the NC side goes to the controller, the NO side goes to another 12V battery and then to the controller....
hence, when you press the button it instantly adds the 4th battery in series giving you 48V while you hold the button...

in theory I think it would work, but I dont know a lot about how controllers operate and if they would have a problem with this setup..
